A Spooky Quilt for a Change

For some reason I wanted to make a dark themed, spooky quilt, something for a wall hanging. Nothing came to mind immediately, I found a couple of things online to incorporate into the piece. It's only 21" x 30" & it needs to be quilted & finished yet, but here it it. Let me know what you think of it.

Time to organize things . . . .

Sometimes I tend to get too many things going at once & either lose track or get tired of them before they're done,anyway they get tossed to the side. I needed a written list of stuff I wanted to do, split up into monthly " assignments" to help me keep track of the projects yet not get too burnt out on any one thing. The assignments are parts of the project to get done within the month. I have 3 or 4 parts of three or four projects scheduled every month to do. I can mark each part off as I get it done. So far, I have 2 new quilts, a clutch purse, some baby items & shorts or pants for my granddaughter on schedule to make between now & May of 2014. In the past I've either gotten tired or a project or gotten overwhelmed with all I had going on, projects or parts thereof got lost & wound up in the UFO pile. I'm hoping to eliminate this with this schedule, which is flexible as I need it to be. Will it actually work? Have to wait & see what happens.

Phantom of the Woods Quilt Top

I finally finished this quilt top, so far I have about 50 hours in it. It's appliqu├ęd, painted, pieced with a bit of thread painting in it. I have yet to quilt it. I just took my time on this project. I hope it's worth it. If you look in the middle of the piece you will see a figure floating in the space between the trees. It's done in colors similar to the background so it can " blend" into its surroundings and not be noticed.
